/etc/motd in 3.6rc3 mentions www.tinycorelinux.com.  Should it be www.tinycorelinux.net?

hi roberts,

i did not mix manual, command line, with TC system generated encryption.

these are my bootcodes:

kernel (hd32)/boot/bzImage waitusb=5 protect restore=LABEL=tc vga=795 psmouse.proto=imps tz=GMT-2 laptop kmap=de mydata=data36

i think that in the protect mode my restore-path is not used. its not important whether i use restore=LABEL=tc or restore=sda2,
the /etc/sysconfig/bfe stores my password and the /etc/sysconfig/mydata stores the name of my backup-file correctly, but the /opt/.backup_device is empty.
when i restore my encrypted backup with the gui, then at first there is no entry or path in the backup/restore-gui and i have to insert the path, for my example sda2.
so i think in my bootcodes that you see above the restore-path is not used at all.
manually with the help of the backup-gui i can restore my encrypted-backup without any problems.

on the other side in the normal unecrypted mode the restore works automatically at the reboot.

Both bkg and theme boot codes are relics from early TC v1.x days for JWM.
. Use control panel->wallpaper to easily select options desired.
how to make this setup persistent?

If you are using images then simply add /opt/backgrounds to /opt/.filetool.lst
image.jpg and leuchtturm.jpg were already both in /opt/backgrounds
tcl3.6rc3 with bootcode bkg=image.jpg.. dont show the "image" (can be activated with the wallpaper menue)
mc3.6.3 with bootcode bkg=leuchtturm.jpg show the "leuchtturm" direct after boot
Curious. Different on both release.
the microcore is using the lst=microorg.lst bootoption, not tcl, which is automaticaly loading the onboot.lst file
If you see a difference between TC and MC, it is likely that you are not using the Xprogs.tcz in the release candidate area.

@netnomad

I don't see a tce directory specified in your boot codes.
That has allowed me to see your issue regarding protect.
I have a correction for the next rc.
